    Criticizing the Oneness of Transcendental Idealism

    No. They are children. They have brains of a child. They are not adults.

    Mod+ 266. RICK ARCHER, CAN CONSCIOUSNESS CHANGE CULTURE?

    Yes. That is a natural and healthy attitude. The doctrine of non-self is unnatural and detrimental to one's mental health.

    Dr. Bernardo Kastrup, What Split Personality Tells Us About Consciousness |461|

    Thanks for the recommendation. I just ordered that book. Although I don't believe in anthropomorphic gods, this article describes my views on this matter perfectly: The Runestone - Spring 1998 (Fire and the Fog by Stephen A. McNallen beginning on page 3). To me it seems that there are a lot of...

    Dr. Bernardo Kastrup, What Split Personality Tells Us About Consciousness |461|

    I don't think it's even possible to self annihilate, because I don't believe in oneness or unified consciousness. Nevertheless, your description of the Left Hand Path seems interesting. Is there any book or website about this topic that you would recommend?

    Dr. Bernardo Kastrup, What Split Personality Tells Us About Consciousness |461|

    No. I don't believe in that theory. I prefer the kind of substantialism Titus Rivas describes here: Rebirth and Personal identity: Is Reincarnation an Intrinsically Impersonal Concept? by Titus Rivas I also agree with the views of the discarnate spirits mentioned in these blog posts: Does...

    Dr. Bernardo Kastrup, What Split Personality Tells Us About Consciousness |461|

    Fair enough. It would indeed be hard to imagine what it would feel like to merge with another consciousness. I don't believe in merging, but the proponents of the doctrine of oneness certainly do: Psychic Sylvia Browne's Near-Death Experience Revelations To me that sounds like total...

    Dr. Bernardo Kastrup, What Split Personality Tells Us About Consciousness |461|

    The end result would still be the same: total annihilation. It doesn't matter, if merging would happen sooner or later. It would still be the total destruction of individuality. Fortunately, that is merely a religious belief. There is zero evidence for that belief. Psychical research, on the...

    Dr. Bernardo Kastrup, What Split Personality Tells Us About Consciousness |461|

    I don't doubt his intelligence, or his achievements, but he is not familiar with psychical research. He doesn't seem to know anything about this topic. Richard Dawkins is an intelligent man as well and he is also a MA and Doctor of Philosophy etc. but it doesn't make him an all-knowing expert...

    Dr. Tom Zinser, Clinical Psychologist on Difference Between Darkness and Evil |451|

    That doesn't make any sense. Individuals get more sophisticated and unique as a result of (spiritual) evolution. One can observe individual differences in behavior even in ant colonies. In this world we see the development of individuality, not its degeneration. Evidence from psychical research...

    I have been to all such gatherings several times, but i never experienced any kind of merging or oneness etc.

    Dr. Tom Zinser, Clinical Psychologist on Difference Between Darkness and Evil |451|

    Whether it happens sooner or later, the end result is still the same: annihilation. If the heavenly realms have less limitations than we experience here, then logically there shouldn't be any limitations on individuality.

    Dr. Tom Zinser, Clinical Psychologist on Difference Between Darkness and Evil |451|

    The answers to these questions are obvious. Live as an individual or merge into the oneness and cease to exist. Oneness = spiritual suicide.

    Grant Cameron, No Such Thing As Evil ET? |449|

    I 've been studying everything I can about these topics for 22 years and I still think that oneness is a false doctrine and evidence from psychical research negates it. Especially the best cases of reincarnation and mental mediumship. Best veridical NDEs and OBEs also support the view that the...

    I am a spiritual personalist: Rebirth and Personal identity: Is Reincarnation an Intrinsically Impersonal Concept? by Titus Rivas I don't believe in anthropomorphic gods, but I do think it's probable that some kind of transcendent mind or cosmic intelligence exists. The ultimate nature of...

    Grant Cameron, No Such Thing As Evil ET? |449|

    If there aren't separate personalities and wills, it is nothing but an amorphous blob. Absolute equality is a problematic idea as well. If God's Sons are of equal value, then what about His Daughters? Are they of inferior value? Moreover, there is zero evidence for the existence of God...

    Because it is detrimental and untrue philosophy/spirituality. It causes depression and robs life of its meaning. The simple life Does “Oneness” in the Afterlife Mean Loss of Individuality? Here Roberta Grimes tells about her reaction to the idea of merging with god after she had started ACIM...

    No, I haven't read ACIM, but I bought this book by Perry: Signs: A New Approach to Coincidence, Synchronicity, Guidance, Life Purpose, and God's Plan I didn't know anything about ACIM, but later I read about it from wikipedia and immediately tore that book to pieces. The book was a big...
